A LITTLE HISTORY ABOUT HONEY
Bees are a very sophisticated and hard-working force.
Their highly organised society consists of a queen and her workers. The queen lays up to 2,000 eggs a day and thus completes her colony.
She sends the workers to collect nectar from the flowers. They then carry the nectar to the hive, where other workers collect it and store it in the hive cells. When the cells are full, they are covered with wax.
The beekeeper then removes the wax to release the honey. Nowadays, these operations are often carried out by machines.
The wax is recovered.
Depending on the size of the hives, they can produce up to 3 kg of honey, which is much more than the bees need, and the surplus can be marketed.
Beeswax is used to make lipsticks, other cosmetics and candles.
In the past, the only way to harvest honey was to kill the bees. Fortunately, since 1800, a new technique has been implemented to avoid harming their lives.
Honey has always been used for its medicinal properties and good taste.
THE VIRTUES OF HONEY
Honey is a concentrate of vitamins and other active ingredients that are particularly good for our health. By consuming it, we can benefit from its laxative, soothing and restorative properties. It helps to strengthen the immune system and soothe sore throats.
Honey is also used externally as it is an excellent skin moisturiser, repairer, soother and nourisher. It is used to heal burns, repair dry and damaged skin and can be used against inflammation or certain snake bites.
Honey is therefore appreciated by the medical profession and is used in many cosmetics and soaps.
Avocado oil is extracted from the flesh of the fruit, which is rich in active ingredients, unlike the stone. It is obtained by cold centrifugation of the avocado, then filtered to remove impurities and odours.
Soothing and lipid regenerating, it is ideal for dry and fragile skin. It is also valuable in the care of mature skin, thanks to its antioxidant and regenerating action.
This natural and virgin oil is also beneficial for the skin. Rich in fatty acids, vitamins and minerals, it nourishes the skin and gives it elasticity. Used alone or in a soap, avocado oil stimulates the synthesis of collagen and elastin in the skin, thus restoring its radiance. It also helps dry skin to regain its freshness.
